How to pack and move home with efficiency

Moving is arguably one of the most stressful things we do. It can very quickly become a frustrating and demanding task, so we’ve put together some tips and tricks to make moving a more positive experience for everyone.

Get rid of everything you don’t need

We always have items lying around the house that we never use. This may only cause minor inconveniences in our everyday life, but when it comes to moving, it could add extra weight we don’t want or need to carry with us. Before you pack your boxes, think about when you last used that piece of clothing or item, if it’s been over 12 months,­­ we would encourage you to consider donating or selling it.

Organising and packing

Organise your items room by room and write a note outlining the contents. Doing this makes it so much easier for you to unpack and reorganise rooms when you move into your new house.

Start early

Packing earlier will mean you’re less fatigued when it comes time to move. You can pack smaller, less used household items first, and slowly progress to larger, everyday items. Not leaving everything until the last minute will alleviate stress and make the whole process a lot more manageable.

Put essentials in a separate box

When you get to your new place, chances are you’ll be tired and drained. You don’t want to be unpacking every box to find your toothbrush, so we suggest putting everything you need for the first few nights at your new home in a small bag or box so you can relax and rest before you begin unpacking and making you house a home!

Take photos before moving electronics

Have you ever looked at a whole bundle of cords and wires and just felt helpless? When you move larger electronics such as televisions, chances are you’ll end up with cords of all different shapes, sizes and colours. If you take a photo of these electronics before moving, you’ll be able to easily identify where each wire goes, and plug them in with minimal hassle.

What about furniture?

One of the great things about opting for flatpack furniture is that you can easily disassemble and protect your furniture during the moving process, before reassembling at your new home.
